"Hemm's all hürt...?" murmurs Fru Püttelkow conspiratorially to the bronze Fiek'n (Sophiechen) on the forecourt of the town hall. The group of figures around the fountain depicts a typical scene of daily life in the rural town of Hagenow and at the same time immortalizes two quaint, quirky characters of Mecklenburg folklore.

Until 1809, the central fountain of the town of Hagenow stood opposite the town hall. Since the renovation of the square in 2007, the so-called Fiek'n Brunnen is located in this place.

You can see three life-size bronze figures and a drinking fountain made of sandstone. The figures were created by the artist Bernd Streiter. They depict the figures of Fru Püttelkow and Fiek'n - Low German for Sophie - well known in and around Hagenow, who are overheard by a cobbler boy exchanging gossip.

The scene, captured in bronze, comes from the Low German folk song "Fru Püttelkow ut Hagenow" by the group "De Plattfööt" from 1982. The song is about the fictional Hagenow shopkeeper Mrs. Püttelkow, who, thanks to her professional activity, always knows what is being rumored in Hagenow and is thus the best-informed person in town. "Fru Püttelkow" quickly became a Mecklenburg cult figure.
